[Noisebridge-discuss] History of my member page on the wiki

Point of fact: Leif never blocked his membership. Ron withdrew it.

Three people asked Leif why he said he'd block his membership; apparently
they disagreed with his "Ron is a troll" accusation and probably thought he
would be fine for membership.

I don't think Ron forgot it, but I can see why you are asking if he did:
it's a two year old accusation.
